When storage media such as hard drives, raid arrays and flash drives malfunction or get damaged, or when files are accidentally overwritten or deleted, the prospect of losing precious and irreplaceable data can be very harrowing indeed. Luckily, in many cases, Advanced Computers can help you recover what would otherwise be lost data by employing a variety of data recovery and restoration techniques.
The types of storage media we can recover data from includes hard drives, RAID arrays, floppy disks, CD, DVD, backup tapes, iPods and other MP3 players, removable cartridges and digital camera media.
Data can be recovered from devices that have suffered mechanical or physical damage such as when a storage device has been dropped or knocked. In addition, data recovery can also be performed on devices where data has been accidentally over written or deleted.
